      Awwwwww....Farewell Buster. I'll give my Buddy an extra hug and head scratch in your memory.


      Carl Nyland

      I rescued a human today.

      Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels.

      I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.

      As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident
      I had in the back of my cage.

      I didn't want her to know that I hadn't
      been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.

      As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life.

      She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me.

      I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her.

      Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.

      A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.

      Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side.

      I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.

      I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors.

      So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

      I rescued a human today.
